Banyen's Description: 

Marmas are special Ayurvedic energy points on the body similar to acupuncture points. Through manipulating them we can direct our Prana—our vital energy—toward greater health and life-giving vitality. Marmas are connected to the chakras and nadis of Yoga and can be used for balancing both body and mind.

Marma therapy is one of the great tools of Yogic and Ayurvedic healing. A knowledge of marmas and how to treat them is important for all those who want to fully employ either system. The first book on marma therapy published in the West, Ayurveda and Marma Therapy clearly describes the 107 main marma points in location, properties and usage. It explains in detail how to treat them with many methods including massage, aromas, herbs and yoga practices.

The book aims both at identifying marmas and indicating the appropriate methods to treat them effectively. Such methods include massage with special oils, herbs and aromas as well as acupressure, acupuncture and various herbal remedies. While classical Ayurvedic herbs and massage oils are presented for those who have access to these, we have also offered commonly available herbs and oils so that any interested reader can begin to use marma therapy for self-care purposes…

The book is a good place to start working with marmas, but still only an introduction to this profound topic. It should be supplemented by a further study of Ayurveda for its full application and integration with the entire range of Ayurvedic modalities.
